Blueberry Oat Bars

Recipe in partnership with the Tone It Up Girls

A lil crunchy, a lil sweet and a whole lot of yum, these blueberry oat bars make for an excellent go-anywhere snack. We know picking up granola bars at the store is easier, but make a batch of these blueberry oat bars and you’ll be patting yourself on the back all week (because homemade is always better than the box, right?).

Ingredients

  • 2 cups gluten-free oats, divided
  • 1/2 cup almonds, chopped
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cups dates, pitted
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350. In a food processor, combine 1 cup oats, almonds, and salt. Process until oats reach a sandy consistency.
  2. Add dates, coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Process for another 30 seconds. Transfer mixture to a new bowl and gently fold in blueberries and remaining 1 cup oats. Mix until sticky and incorporated. The bars will take on a purple hue.
  3. Press down mixture in a parchment covered 8×8 square pan and bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into bars. For rapid cooling, transfer directly to the freezer for 15 minutes or so.
